JS50 Keeping Parasites at Bay with Dr. Andrea Loar, DVM
Most producers are familiar with the FAMACHA system of parasite detection, but more recently, the 5 Point Check has been developed which helps to detect a wider variety of parasites. In this presentation, Dr. Loar will discuss elevating your parasite control regimen to the next level using the 5 Point Check, as well as strategic deworming and fecal egg counts.
JS50 Class Fee: $20.
